Keep Brewing and Carry On: Introducing Our Annual Family Open Day

Every part of our lives involves the concept of simply ‘carrying on’. It involves work, looking after the kids, making tea, doing the washing, getting up and going to bed. Our everyday routines are very repetitive and a lot of the time we are struggling for motivation, but we simply carry on, because we have to. It is that notion that the world keeps on moving, regardless of what you do, that underpins Ossett Brewery’s ethos of hard work and making the most of opportunities, but it is also central to the support we give to our preferred charity; the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospi..

Our Brewery Social Services You

There are many ways we like to get together for a drink; to celebrate a birthday or an engagement, before the football or rugby, on the way to a gig or just as a weekly ritual between friends or family. Social drinking is one of the world’s oldest cultural traditions. There are few things we enjoy more than getting together, ordering some beers and chewing the fat while the world passes by. It’s escapism in a raw and stripped back format and because Ossett Brewery possess the bare essentials you need for this; pubs, people and beer, we thought it would be a good idea to celebrate our role in..

Something In The Air At Fernandes

We all like to raise a glass to celebrate an anniversary, and we don’t need much excuse, whether it’s marking a wedding milestone or five years since the cat first learned how to use the cat flap that you fitted many years previously. If there’s a significant date to be noted, we’ll iron a shirt and be straight there. So imagine if there were two anniversaries landing together at the same place, and that place was a pub combined with a microbrewery? You shouldn’t need a degree in Event Management to be able to arrange an appropriate celebration, and lo and behold we have al.. Read more
